BBHQ Monday Morning Upper.

It’s horse-racing season in America. How do we know?

Pretty obvious, isn'it?

We thought this would be a great time to share a wonderful song with some wonderful images of famous winners.

And now, a word from our sponsor:

But you'll have to drive around. While there were hundreds of them in the 60s, today there are only 2 left.

Technology Good; Technology Bad

Technology today is a double-edged sword. When my grandparents were kids, just about every technological innovation was marvelous. The telephone, the washing machine, the elevator, the airplane, the automobile. Every one, a winner!

Today... not so much. We have freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and freedom of assembly. All good, of course. But sometimes, I think we need freedom from technology.

The Tweeting Bra:

I gotta admit, I am of mixed minds on this one. Iíll let you decide for yourself.

The BBHQ Joke of the Week

Well, here's another one... marital bliss interrupted.

A highly dissatisfied wife finally convinced her husband to go with her to consult a therapist.

When asked what the problem was, the wife went into a tirade listing every problem they had ever had in the years they had been married. On and on and on: neglect, lack of intimacy, feeling unloved; an entire laundry list of unmet needs she had endured.

Finally, after allowing this for a sufficient length of time, the therapist got up, walked around the desk and after asking the wife to stand, he embraced and kissed her long and passionately as her husband watched - with a raised eyebrow.

The woman shut up and quietly sat down as though in a daze. The therapist said, "This is what your wife needs at least 3 times a week. Can you do this?"

"Well, I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on Fridays, I fish."


Have a great week. We'll share the fun again next Monday.
